Snack Pack Celebrates 36 weeks of packing and serving 1200 children each week throughout the 2016-2017 school year, totaling over 40,000 weekend snack packs!
We want to thank all who have made the Snack Pack ministry possible: those that order the food, pick up the food from Sam’s, pick up the monthly food donations from Midwest Food Bank, set up the food tables, run off the notes, pack the snack packs, deliver the 150 file boxes filled with snack packs to the two schools, deliver the boxes to the planning rooms and return to pick up the empty boxes.
We thank all who have provided financial gifts including individuals, churches, community groups, schools and foundations. This ministry is possible because of our dedicated congregation at Glen oak Christian, members from First Christian, University United Methodist, Memorial Christian, Living Waters, Church Women United Peoria Area, Neighborhood members, Community Foundation of Central Illinois and the staffs and faculty at both Glen Oak Community Learning Center and Valeska Hinton Early Childhood Center.
Throughout the summer we will be networking with other possible schools and volunteers while we make plans for the 2017-2018 school year. We continue to address needs of children and their families and thank you for your support in so many ways.
Please feel free to share this article and information with others through email, publications and sharing by word of mouth. We appreciate everything you do and want others to now of your commitment and dedication.
